Michelle & Mike | Engagment Session | Boston Area Wedding Photographer

Michelle and Mike's wedding is next weekend! I can't believe that the time has gone by so fast and their big day is about to happen.

These two are incredibly sweet and kind and I couldn't be happier for them. Last September we headed out to the Public Garden and North End and had a blast making our way through the Hemp Festival, yes, I said Hemp Festival! Ha. I had taken the T in and as I crossed over the Common I saw this low lying "fog" hanging over the park. I didn't realize what was happening until I really got to the area, but quickly I totally understood, if you know what I mean...

Once I finally met up with Michelle and Mike we had a good chuckle about it and proceeded to avoid the area as much as possible.

I heard their engagement story again last week and while at that time the area was pretty abandoned (except for one stranger who insisted on sitting right next to them...) On the day of this session it was quite the opposite. So, we embraced it and I was psyched to get this kid to work with us...

Mike lived in the North End while the two were dating so we went back to their old stomping grounds and grabbed a few keepers!
